Today Visit Abilene, Texas had the opportunity to meet some of the littlest and brightest fans of Abilene by reading How The Grinch Stole Christmas to a couple of third grade classes at Johnson Elementary. They not only heard the iconic Christmas story of “How The Grinch Stole Christmas” but also learned that travel and tourism bring in over 3.67 million people to Visit Abilene, Texas each year and that Abilene is one of the few communities in the world to have all 6 of the Dr. Seuss sculptures on display! We may not be the Grinch but we can for sure say that because of this our heart grew 3 sizes today! #VisitAbilene #MrsManskerRocks #StorybookCaptialofChristmas
